Thursday 12.45pm (45 mins) Intermediate Italian at More London (start date Thursday May 23rd)
This is aimed at people who have a grounding in the language, like GCSE or have studied beginners with me and would like more detailed study. We will be chatting about subjects like shopping, spare time interests, and holidays in some depth.
As far as the grammar is concerned we'll revise the present tense, and masculine and feminine, singular and plural, and then look at the past and possibly future tenses in detail. We'll also have a go at reading magazine excerpts and writing short essays.
"I have now done a couple of years of intermediate/advanced Italian,as well as beginners' Portuguese - this year I'm going to be carrying on with Italian & doing beginners' Spanish as well. The classes are in my view excellent - they combine a traditional approach to grammar/structure with lots of opportunities to practice language skills & work thru exercises both in full class & in small groups. There's sometimes a little homework but optional & nothing too time-consuming although my experience has been that you get more out of classes if you do some preparation/revision in between. The level of the class has a degree of flexibility & can be adjusted to suit participants.The atmosphere is fun, engaging & friendly - we at GLA certainly found ourselves looking forward to the weekly lessons."
